Azaleas

I took a photo of one of my clients' azalea bush the other morning, because it was just after a gentle rain, and the sun was shining, causing the raindrops to twinkle on the blossoms.  I love the photo as a photo, but I wanted to paint more the impression of the blossoms than a botanical image [frankly I haven't the patience to do much detail!].  I also wanted to practice with the lizard lick brush I bought for Myrna Wacknov's workshop in Portland [in April].  I haven't mastered the brush yet, but it was fun trying.  Back to the drawing board!

Hi Dee! These are so Lively! They are dancin'
Great color, lots of soft edges and crisp lines.
When I do something like this,I put it in a card program and print out three or four for the next group of Birthdays.

Yeh, I make too many cards, but this would lend itself well to that format. It is square, which I love, but envelopes are more expensive.

Thanks for your note!
